When to Seek Wound Treatment

Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Healing Center in these scenarios:

  • You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes).
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness, swelling, foul odor or a change in color.
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected.

Diabetes and Wound Care

Caring for your skin when you have diabetes

Try these tips to help prevent dryness, injury, and other skin problems.

  • Use warm water. Avoid hot water, which can dry out the skin.
  • Use a bath soap that has a moisturizer added. Use soap only as needed (on your feet, underarms, and groin). Avoid deodorant soaps and antibacterial soaps. They may dry your skin.
  • If your skin is dry, don’t use bubble baths. Use bath oil instead.
  • Use a moisturizer after you bathe. But don’t put it on skin folds and between your toes.
  • Use a home humidifier during cold weather and in dry climates
